A Wound in a Dance with Love
Both a wide knowledge of the works by old and contemporary masters and a singular sensibility in obtaining visual and emotional suggestions from actual reality equally converge into Sean Scully’s art.
From the first figurative experiments in the 1960s and the minimalist works in the 1970s, to the current work, Sean Scully. A Wound in a Dance with Love – published to mark the exhibition of the same name at MAMbo in Bologna – documents the most important developments of a practice which is always consistent with its assumptions but is also capable of changing significantly over time.
The book contains all the images of the exhibited works, as well as a selection of other works by the artist to support the essays. The volume starts with an exclusive interview with Sean Scully by Lorenzo Balbi, a sort of “small exhibition/text”, where the artist answers each question with a work, continues with the essays by Dávid Fehér, Raphy Sarkissian and Danilo Eccher and ends with an important text by Scully (2005), Giorgio Morandi: Resistance and Persistence, published for the first time in its Italian translation.
